Area Forecast Discussion
756 FXUS64 KHUN 270451 AAD AFDHUN Area Forecast Discussion...UPDATED National Weather Service Huntsville AL 1151 PM CDT THU MAY 26 2016 .UPDATE... For 06Z TAFs. && .DISCUSSION... (Issued 934 PM CDT THU MAY 26 2016) The forecast area remains on the western fringe of a surface high pressure system off the Atlantic Coast. Weak upper level ridging also dominated portions of the southeastern CONUS, with several shortwaves moving just to the northwest of the area. An earlier MCS to the north has all but dissipated as it approached the forecast area...given the dry air in place. Area radars still show ongoing convection from another MCS over northern MS and western TN, however given the trends over the last few volume scans, this should not progress too far east. Therefore, no pops were extended through the overnight hours. Only changes made to the previous forecast were to account for hourly trends. Although temps have cooled a few degrees quicker than previously forecast, dense cirrus from the MCS to our west should level off the cooling overnight and the forecast package seems to be on track. 73 && .AVIATION... For 06Z TAFs: VFR conditions will prevail through the next 24 hours at the KMSL and KHSV terminals. Winds will generally remain from the south and may gust at times during the afternoon, however confidence is too low to add gusts in the forecast. 73 && .HUN Watches/Warnings/Advisories... AL...NONE.
